in u.s. history threaten to undermine support pour the war in afghanistan. >> more than 90,000 documents leaked to a whistle-blower site than official records have ever portrayed. >> this morning, the white house and pentagon are in damage control mode. nick schifrin is in kabul. we begin with john hendren in washington. >> reporter: good morning. most of the tens of thousands of documents are what's called raw intelligence submitted by junior officers. but u.s. intelligence, as well as everyone else are now sifting through them. this flood of documents was written through january 2004 to january 2009. underfunded and undersupported, despite a taliban insurgency at that growing strongerer and fiercer. the white house immediately condemned the leak saying those conditions were exactly why the president announced a new strategy and a troop surge this year. still, the white house is struggling to stem the damage. >> it will create a lot of tension. the national security adviser just put out a release saying this thanes national security. there's a lot ever detail in this. not
of defense has been concerned for more than a year about the problems that the u.s. has been having in cyberspace, both on dod networks, but also on critical infrastructure, and there's a real fear that some of our foreign opponents had the ability to make attack us through this, to hurt dod and so there's a real interest in making dod better able to operate in cyberspace and this is one of the initiatives that the department is making to do that. >> reporter: u.s. intelligent officials are getting more and more concerned that chinese and russian operatives are surveilling computer systems that control places like this, power plants and other key parts of america's infrastructure. contacted by cnn, an official at the chinese embassy in washington called that notion ridiculous, unwarranted and said in a statement, we want to see no more of such allegations of china targeting u.s. infrastructure through the internet. the nsa's mere involvement is creating dispute. "the wall street journal" which first reported this story says in order to detect possible cyber attacks, the nsa would re
might remember hearing a lot about the marja operation in mid-february. intense combat lead by u.s. marines and british troops and afghan forces to be followed by what general mcchrystal called a government in a box. rolling out governance after the combat. government in a box hasn't worked out that way. it hasn't stood out by any means. security isn't established, and people siding with the afghan government there have been threatened and targeted up to and including assassination. kandahar has been portrayed in the press as the twin operation to marha. twin but bigger. the line i raerd is since marja isn't a success, at least yet, maybe ever, the same type of operation in kandahar has been delayed. that's what it seemed like at home, at least to me before i got here. here it does not seem like that. here it's clear that kandahar isn't delayed. it's well under way. they're not blowing things up in kandahar. they're doing things like opening police stations. let me show you some of that instead of trying to explain it. we flew in a blackhawk helicopter with general hodges to a base

to these documents as being rather low level classified information that any number of u.s. service members could have access to, but it's obviously something that the pentagon is quite concerned about, that this has now been made public for people all over the world to see, shannon. shannon: with that in mind, mike, what are we hearing from wickileaks about this massive release of classified information, any hint that we should expect more to come? >> reporter: the founder did say, shannon, they have about 15,000 other documents that they have not yet released and he predicted that there would be more leaks to come as well. so all indications are that he is waiting for the right opportunity to get maximum media exposure. it's quite clear that this guy is clearly antiwar and trying to undermine support for the war and a lot of the key countries' contributing troops to the afghan effort. here's more from the wickileaks founder earlier today. >> the coverup, all sorts of crimes, begins at the bottom and moves its way to the top so it is quite hard to enact a new policy and have it filtered down to
of a vacuum after this country's inconclusive march elections. the u.s. would like to see a government seated before that drawdown completes itself by the end of august. the u.s., of course, as we remember, drawing down to 50,000 troops. that is not a critical factor. i have been hearing repeatedly from the u.s. military, from senior administration officials, that unless something catastrophic takes place, that drawdown will stay on course. what we are seeing in iraq these days aside from the political bickering that is taking place is that drawdown happening in the complete and total intensity. it is overwhelming when you look at it. we are talking about the u.s. moving millions of pieces of equipment, hundreds of bases shutting down across the country. all of this very critical, being closely watched by rocky officials. there are wide sfrspread concer amongst the population. >> what we are seeing on dr. biden, she is not just there to shake hands and stand by her husband's side. she has a schedule of her own while she is there? >> that's right, she does. we are hearing that she is also goin

as we go about it. it is simply vast. no u.s. airline has bought the airliner yet. to answer your really important question, airbus has written off the majority of the money that it costs to design, develop and build it and they told me today they expect the new planes being built will break even by 2014 because they've written off the old debt. it's huge. >> it's a good sign for the economy when people are shopping for airplanes. you remember at the brink of the recession, fewer people were showing up at these things. >> reporter: yeah. and the really important thing, of course, that plane right in the middle, the 787, which is making its debut outside the united states, the dreamliner, that has sold 863 of them. that tells you the importance, not only for the puget sound and the northwestern united states but right through the midwest, through to chicago where boeing has its headquarters. the industry that builds that plane is crucial. that's why that plane is the star of this show. >> richard, come and visit us again. richard quest at the farnborough air show in england. good to see y

, will be able to form a government. you know, the context of this, lynn, of course, is that u.s. forces are drawing down and that they continue on schedule. there will be no combat forces left there by the end of the next month. it's a little ironic that vice president biden was there promoting this unity government. it was senator biden before the 2008 election who first put forward the idea of partial or sort of quasi partition of iraq among the kurds, shiites and sunnis and now the fourth visit as vice president to iraq trying to encourage these leaders, prime minister, others, president to get it to get it together and form the government. when he was there, of course, he met with u.s. troops at a mess hall there. a dining hall. he was there, also, to attend a naturalization ceremony. there you see it there with general odierno. they wear the uniform and now -- shaking hands at that moment becoming u.s. citizens on the fourth of july. there was that scare. we should mention, lynn, when there were explosions. some sort of projectile hitting the ground within the green zone. the very
sleeper agents have been sent back to russia. in exchange, the u.s. is receiving four men accused by moscow of spying for the west. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams is live for us in washington. pete, i've been watching you cover this thing minute by minute. i don't know how you can catch your breath. this has happened so quickly. >> reporter: well, and it's all over now. the plane carrying the ten russians from u.s. landed in vienna. they got off, landed, the four from russia landed in vienna earlier today. that plane has landed in the united kingdom where those four agents accused -- convicted of spying for the u.s. and western agencies in russia will be deep death briefed by british and american officials before some of them, probably not all of them, eventually come to the u.s. but that's a ways away. they'll stay a while in the uk for this rest period. so it's finally over, tamron. now some of the ten, at least one of them, at least, will not stay in russia. that is what their lawyers say. at least one of them, originally from peru, intends to go back to peru and the
from the pentagon. mick, such a fascinating story. iran claimed this scientist was abducted. the u.s. says that isn't what happened. what's going on here? >> savannahs, even in the an nals of spydom this sister roy is somewhat bizarre. this iranian nuclear scientist, shar ran amiri disappeared with a year ago. he turned up here in the u.s. where he reportedly shared some of the secrets of iran's nuclear weapons program with u.s. government officials. iran claimed as you said that amiri had actually been kidnapped and tortured by the cia. but even as late as yesterday, secretary of state hillary clinton denied that saying amir riff here of his own free will and could leave at any time. all that played out as amiri showed up at the iranian intersection here in washington earlier this week saying he wanted to return to iran and as far as we know, he is on his way this morning. what makes this case strange is over the course of the past several months, amiri released three videos, one saying he was kidnapped and tortured, the second saying he was attending graduate school voluntarily in
. this continues, come august, it's going to be tiny town u.s.a. first, immigration showdown, the obama administration suing the state of arizona over the new and controversial immigration law. the administration contend the law is not constitutional. as you may know arizona passed a law requiring police officers who enforce other laws to question the suspect's legal status if the officer believes the person is in the country illegally. the white house has been critical of the law. the president called it misguided. but supporters claim arizona has no other choice and they argue the feds are not doing enough to secure the borders. trace gallagher is working the story from the west coast newsroom. what's the basis of this lawsuit? it's specific, right? >> yeah, it is. we have the newsroom working this, 25 a pages was the filing. basically it's the chicken and egg legal argument saying the federal government has a law on the books making it illegal to be in the country without documentation. they're citing the supremacy clause saying basically federal law trumps state law. there's nothing

and that would be the u.s. part of the spy swap, the russians would send then people here to the u.s. we don't know exactly how many would be sent to the u.s. in return. in cold war style spy swap. but it certainly does appear that, you no he, the plea negotiations are -- have moved ahead sufficiently that they can try to get this done this afternoon when the ten appear in federal court. >> all right. we'll be watching for that court hearing, as i said, later this afternoon. pete, thank you. >> you bet. >> my big question today, is russia a bigger threat than we realize. share your thoughts on twitter, facebook or e-mail if you have thoughts about how the spy swap is going or memories of cold war, go ahead, give me a shout. >>> part of a global plot targeting other countries. the attorney general called that plot one the most dangerous since 9/11. it was part of a larger conspiracy by al qaeda that included a plan to target mass transknit england and we're getting new details this hour about arrests in norway. first, the three under arrest are suspected members of al qaeda, second, police sa
